I went on 2 tours with Omar. The jungle tour is an easy walk through the wildlife preserve - stopping many times along the way. Omar was born and raised in the Manzanillo area and is intimately familiar with the history, culture and the wildlife in the area. He knows quite a bit about the physiology of the plants and... More

My wife and I went on a jungle hike this morning and loved it. Omar sees the jungle in a way no outsider ever could. He notices things the average person would never see and explains things thoroughly and thoughtfully. My wife and I had been in Puerto Viejo for about a week before taking the tour. All my wife...

Barbara and I, while staying in Manzanillo, Limon for a couple weeks, were lucky to be introduced to Omar by our casita mgr., Amanda. Omar was unique in the fact that he not only makes sure you see all types of wildlife (bullet ants, howler monkeys, toucans, eyelash vipers,et al) while touring the jungle; BUT, if you allow yourself the...

We stayed in Punta Uva for 5 days and booked a jungle tour with Omar in Manzanillo after doing some research online. Omar met us on time ready to teach and explore. Over the next 4 plus hours, we hiked with Omar in the nearby refuge learning about the plants and wildlife. We saw monkeys, sloths, snakes, spiders, various ants,... More

We stayed at his cabinas bucus and took two trips with Omar as our guide. Both were very good! On a walk in the surrounding jungle we were surprised how much we got to see. Without him we would of course not have seen much at all as it takes trained eyes to spot many of the animals. And some... More

We went with Omar on a guided walk in the Primary jungle whilst we stayed at Bucus Cabinas. We thoroughly enjoyed our walk. Omar has eyes like a hawk or better. How he saw some of the things he pointed out to us I have no idea... I do know that without him we would have seen practically nothing. He... More

Omar is an excellent guide for Manzanillo! His knowledge, gentle spirit, and sense of humor was a pleasure to experience. Our tour was a boat ride to a lagoon, a kayak trip through the lagoon, and a relaxing ride back. The trip was fantastic and we learned so much from Omar about his homeland, its species, and history. Absolutely fascinating.... More

Our family toured the jungle outside of Manzanillo with Omar. Omar was super knowledgeable and very effective at finding creatures that we never would have seen without his assistance. He was funny, warm and happy to answer any questions that we had along the way. His love for his home is apparent and contagious and his tour was one of... More
